Asheville house description

We welcome you to Plumlea Farm - a vacation home that you'll truly remember long after your stay has ended!

This beautiful home on 250 private acres is located only 18 minutes from both Asheville and historic Hendersonville and offers some of the most breathtaking views you'll find in the area. You'll enjoy close proximity (maximum 20 minute drive) to wonderful area activities and sightseeing such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore House, Biltmore Village Shopping, Downtown Asheville, Hendersonville Town Square, Chimney Rock, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, golf, kayaking, and many superb Asheville restaurants (brochures detailing popular local activities, restaurant menus and maps are in the home for your convenience).

Our location is absolutely ideal during leaf season with gorgeous views from every window of the home! Plumlea also has a sizable covered front porch which offers a peaceful area to enjoy bird watching, spot a wild turkey or deer, read a book from our extensive library or simply take in the breathtaking views and relax in our rocking chairs.

You may also choose to spend your time hiking on the expansive private acreage through beautiful pastures and serene woods with great long range views of both Mount Mitchell and Mount Pisgah. Hiking trails, streams and gorgeous scenery are all just waiting for you to explore!

For your reading pleasure, hundreds of books await, including books on the Asheville area and an extensive selection of Civil War and WWII history books. You may also choose to watch a movie from our large selection of over 40 adult and children's DVD titles or perhaps enjoy one of our family board games.

The comfortable living room easily seats seven with a couch, loveseat, recliner and 2 oversized chairs. The living area flows into the dining room with formal seating for six. Just down the hall is our cozy den where you'll find a queen sleeper sofa next to the half bathroom. This room is perfect for an extra guest or babysitter to enjoy an area of their own with doors that close from the hallway for added privacy.

Our renovated, fully equipped kitchen contains a new dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, programmable coffee maker, full array of cooking utensils and seating for 4. Additionally, one of the unique features of our home includes direct access from the kitchen to the screened in porch for convenient outdoor dining with seperate seating for 7.

Whether you're up for an exciting and on the go vacation filled with many unique activities or simply a quiet and relaxing time away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you'll find your ideal retreat at Plumlea Farm.

**SPECIAL OFFERS** Planning on dining in one of Asheville's superb restaurants? If you're staying a minimum of 7 nights in our home, we'll provide you with a FREE $25 giftcard to one of Asheville's award winning restaurants to make your stay even more enjoyable!
